    We are delivered by boat to our beautifully landscaped lakeside resort and arrived in reception with our cases at 9:30am. This takes the form of a shaded veranda, open on three sides. It's already well into the 30's and very humid and after being given the introductory blurb about everything the resort has to offer the visitor, we were told we couldn't check in until 3pm !

So, being the 'flashpackers' that we are, we cancelled it and booked ourselves a nice budget air ticket instead.
